I think you might be the first person ever to say k series and torque for days in the same sentence. Typically a k series makes 30-40% less torque than horsepower and doesn’t make shit for power or torque below 3k rpm. Sure if you turn up the boost enough it will make more power than any of the stock offerings, but you’d have to push it well past 600 horsepower to match the torque of the 392 or diesel stock. Even then the torque would be too high in the rpm for technical trails, unless you go the Toyota build route and throw in a doubler. Not the route I’d go in a Jeep build, but to each his own.
I meant compared to any other 4cyl gasoline engine…besides going to a Cummins, but thats a Diesel. K series turbocharged are hard to beat in terms of power to weight, displacement, and money ratio in the 4cyl arena. Sure higher displacement will yield more torque stock for stock, but higher displacement also means gas guzzler.
